Choose Happiness.

You are invited and welcomed to participate in the inspiration and expression this site provokes. I have spent my life watching people, learning from mistakes and growing “up”. I was raised in a very supportive and loving family environment – I couldn’t have asked for anything more! But somewhere along the way, when I entered middle school, I traveled down a dark and lonely road. I pushed everyone away and was lost for about 5 years – not knowing who I was or what I was supposed to do.

Amber VilhauerThen, piece by piece, step by step, I started making better decisions and rebuilding my identity. I graduated high school with honors (actually receiving an award from the school as the “Most Improved” student), moved on to college and most importantly, found myself. I don’t regret or feel badly about a single moment in my past because it is solely responsible for where I am today.

This site is for all of you out there who stumble into doubt, wonder what your purpose is, or just need a place to escape and get answers. I’ve been there, and I’m here for you now.

xoxo, Amber

Ashley’s Expression: From Lost to Found

Amber – I never saw you without a smile on your face. I forgot how much I like being around people who are positive.

I never really mentioned this but last semester during school, I really felt that I had lost myself. I was questioning my moral value and self-worth and doubting just everything about myself.

Pictures of rage, disappointment, lost identity, questioning of trust were things that filled my room and occupied my thoughts. You really inspired me to become more – become all I can be.

Not many people are truly there for one another, but I knew I could always count on you. Thank you for everything you have done for me and given me.

And thank you most of all for believing in me.

Love lots,
Ashley
